Synopsis:  Suzie's fiancé, James, is pressuring her to pick a day for their wedding. She's cancelled three dates, and he's starting to wonder if she really wants to get married. But how does she go about telling her fiancé that she's already married to a man in Mexico? She needs a divorce, and she needs one fast. Her marriage has been a secret from her best friend, Janice, her fiancé, even her own mother, and she wants to keep it that way.

When Janice asks her to come along on an all-girl vacation to Acapulco, Suzie leaps at the chance. A search on the Internet gives Suzie all the information she needs to track down her husband, Joaquin, while out of the country and finally get that divorce.

Unfortunately, Joaquin won't give her up so easily.

When James appears in Acapulco unexpectedly, all hell breaks loose, and Suzie stands to lose everything she's ever loved.

Review: ACAPULCO NIGHTS is Suzie’s story. During her time at college in Mexico, Suzie was wooed and won by Joaquin, eventually resulting in their courthouse wedding. After the wedding, Suzie’s father died and she went home to the States to be with her mother and never looked back. Twelve years later, Suzie has found the man of her dreams and now she must get a divorce from Joaquin in order to marry her fiancé, James. While the story was interesting, I didn’t like Suzie or Joaquin. My favorite characters were Janice and James. I didn’t like Suzie because she knew James had been hurt before from an ex who cheated on him and Suzie never divulged she was married. I also didn’t like Suzie because of t he way she treated Janice, both in the past (through flashbacks) and in the present day. Suzie didn’t come across as a genuine caring friend and she is very immature, especially for a 31-year-old woman. Joaquin is a user and a poser who doesn’t care about anyone but himself. However, ACAPULCO NIGHTS is, overall, a charming story.
